Four easy payments to fit your budget

As you begin registering for Fall 2020 courses and prepare for the start of the semester, now is the time to start planning your budget.  To help with the process, we offer a flexible no-interest four-month payment plan that lets you spread the cost of tuition for Fall 2020 over the semester.

Here is how the four-month payment plan works:

1. Sign up between July 18, 2020 and August 13, 2020 (by 8PM) at the Student Account Center

2. Pay the $42 fee online when you sign up

3. First-time UM-Flint students will receive a paper bill indicating the amount of tuition due, including the first payment.  All students will also receive email reminders prior to payment due dates.

4. Make your four tuition payments by the following dates:

August 15, 2020
September 15, 2020
October 15, 2020
November 15, 2020


Payment can be made online anytime before these due dates at the Student Account Center or in person at the Cashier's office, located at 261 University Pavilion.  Office hours can be found on the home page here.

NOTE: It is important to make your payments by the stated due dates to avoid late fees and registration holds that may prevent you from being able to register for classes or request transcripts.

Why Sign up for a Payment Plan?

Signing up for the four-month payment plan option as early as possible allows you to:

  • Spread out the cost of attending UM-Flint over the entire semester, rather than paying your tuition all at once up front.
  • Pay no interest on the payments you make toward tuition, as long as you make your payments by the stated due dates.
  • Have more time to plan and budget before the semester starts.
  • Give our Office of Financial Aid staff more time to help you finance your education.
  • Make sure you are able to pay for and complete the semester so that you don't lose the credits you earn.
  • Make sure you don't end up with student loan debt for a semester you don't complete.
  • Keep your financial aid eligibility by paying your tuition and completing the semester.
